Renfrew Millennium Trail
Renfrew’s Millennium Trail is 3.4 km long, has lighting, and is suitable for walkers, joggers, wheelchairs, bikers, and cross country skiing. It follows the route of the CN Railway, through the heart of Renfrew and imparts the atmosphere of both the town, and countryside. There are an amazing number of American Elms. Beavers can be seen in Smith’s Creek, down where logs were once driven to a sawmill in the town centre. Plaques placed along the Millennium Trail describe Renfrew’s heritage, including its country-wide fame as Dairy Town Canada.
Directions: Driving along Hwy 17, take the Bruce St intersection into Renfrew (traffic lights). At the next set of traffic lights, turn left on Stewart St and cross the Bonnechere River. You are now on Raglan St S. Follow the signs to Hwy 132, or at the next set of traffic lights, turn right onto Munroe, then turn right onto Lochiel N (stop sign) and left onto Lisgar St. Turn left onto Ma-Te-Way Park Dr and park in the Ma-Te-Way Recreational Park, or alternatively continue on Lisgar St and park your car on the shoulder of Riverview Dr which is on your right.
